GCS Offers New Emergency Text Alerts
In an effort to better communicate with parents during times of emergency the GCS Communications Department asks that you fill out this change in phone number form (formulario de alerta de emergencia) and return it to your school. The form is only for parents who currently have a landline listed as their “Primary Contact Phone” and wish to receive texts about school cancellations or other emergency schedule changes. Parents who already list a cellular phone as their primary contact will not need to take action to receive this service. Visit the GCS district website for more information.

A child who reads 20 minutes per day is exposed to 1.8 MILLION words per year and scores in the 90th percentile on standardized tests. A child who reads 5 minutes per day is exposed to 282,000 words per year and scores in the 50th percentile on standardized tests. A child who reads 1 minute per day is exposed to 8,000 words per year and scores in the 10th percentile on standardized tests. READING MATTERS!
